average in texas. >> what you're bringing us here in new york, thank you very much. >> it's great. >>> it's back to business today for the u.s. state department. all but one of the 19 embassies and consulates closed last weekend have reopened. still closed is the embassy in yemen and lahore, pakistan, remains closed due to a threat. is this an essentially all clear? how are you interpreting it? >> well, to some extent u.s. officials feel with confidence that they can allow some of the embassies or all of the embassies that have closed as a result of that to reopen. that's the case here in cairo. there's no doubt that security will remain high in these fa till si sill teas. they had actually reduced their staff because of the current unrest here in egypt. so really they are opened for business, as we understand it. things are back to normal. they are still operating at the staffing levels that actually preceded that al quiaeda threat. some staff had already left. there's no doubt they are going to remain a vigilant watch on many of these embassies in wake of the al qaeda threat that emerge

presidential candidates rick santorum and noted spiritual adviser donald trump. but it was texas senator ted cruz who raised the roof with the biggest applause line of the day. >> there was no more important regulatory reform that we can do than to repeal every single word of obama. [ cheering ] and that reaction right there shows -- >> john: because those evangelicals know the one thing jesus was known for is taking away affordable healthcare for the poor. it is red meat for the crowds but the president wasn't the only target. both cruz and santorum took swipes at mitt romney's failed 2012 campaign while others wrung their hands over the g.o.p.'s shaky future. if recent history is our guide, they could have ample reason to fear. dan balz is chief correspondent at the "washington post," also the author of the highly praised essential new book "collision 2012", obama versus romney and the future of elections in america. he joins us now from washington, d.c. dan, what a pleasure. thank you so much for being here on "viewpoint." >> john, thank you. >> john: congratulations to all of the acclaim

, democrat. both from texas. setting aside donald trump, it appears there's an intensity of activity in iowa, particularly on the republican side. we saw claire mccaskill out for hillary this weekend. it's in part because it's so wide open in the gop. >> both parties will be nominating someone who's not president. that opens it up a lot. the democratic field, they have a weak bench, and be careful what they wish for to clear the field and have no competition. the last time almost uncontested nomination was '56, with stevenson. he probably would have been beaten anyway, but he was beaten. competition is good for parties. the republican party is going to get their fill of it. >> no question, but there does not appear to be that much competition yet, understandably, with hillary clinton out there find of freezing the field. >> i don't think so. martin o'malley made noise he's interested, joe biden, and kristen gillibrand, elizabeth warren, a lot of buzz, and governor cuomo from new york. a lot of talk. and let me not forgot joe biden. he will call me this afternoon and remind me. it's too early
